Abe or Langdon by Sigune Abe or Langdon by Sigune
A belated birthday present for my friend Nout. He has been lending me his BPRD comics lately, which to me means, "Draw me some BPRD!" ;)

I guess he'd rather have had Roger than Abe, but I had an idea for Abe. So there. Still hope he likes it :).

Inked with a Pentel brush pen, coloured with watercolour on Lana cold-pressed (NOT) paper.

I'm really rather happy with how this turned out *g*.

Abe Sapien is (c) Mike Mignola. I got my inspiration from the work John Arcudi and Guy Davis have been doing in "The Dead" and "Garden of Souls". Oh, and I also adore movie!Abe :D.

Oh I LOVE this! :clap: I haven't read The Garden of Souls yet, The Dead is my favorite B.P.R.D. so far!
Langdon and Edith!
Poor Abe :cry: my favorite hero-and you drew him so well!

Yep, I love the comic and movie versions of Abe too!

Maybe you should put this in the :iconhellboyuniverse: ?
Great drawing and colors too!

Thanks very much! :hug:

I already liked Abe from Hellboy, and I am very happy that he gets more page time in B.P.R.D. His backstory is pretty fascinating...

- And look, I followed your suggestion ;).

I'm glad you like it! It's the first time I do a Hellboy character, and with Abe things just worked :). I'm delighted that BPRD has become an independent series - Abe, Liz and the others deserve further exploration!

It looks great for your first time :)

Same here- it was cool to see that world of Hellboy's "family" expanded =D

I dont know this fandom, but I love the fish patterned wall paper.

I felt the wallpaper needed a little extra, and since Abe is a fishman, I though little fishies would be nice :).

Thanks!

Hey, this is really good! I like the play on shadows and Abe being in the foreground and the portraits of his old life in the background. It's like Abe is representing the future, which is something to look forward to, and the portraits being the past he should leave behind... at least that's how I see it. Great job! xD

Thanks a lot! :D

I love the dark irony of Abe's backstory. And I do hope that after Garden of Souls, he is indeed able to leave the past behind...
